I looked at my last update and apparently I've been slacking somewhat with this blogging business.
Not that very many people even use Xanga anymore....
I might just be the only person without Myspace, or Facebook, or whatever the heck everyone is using these days.
I found out that starting in April, I'll be spending the next six months overseas, 3 of those in a little place called Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
I was accepted into a dts at Univeristy of the Nations called PhotogenX, basically meaning, it's entirely focused around photography. It's lead by a couple who have spent the last ten years studying and traveling around the world, using their camera's as a voice for the injustice and poverty that lives in places like the Middle East, Africa, Afghanistan, etc.
They have some incredibly beautiful photographs on their website: http://www.photogenx.net
I'm in the middle of applying for a full two-year degree program they are offering, which starts in April with the Photogenx dts and ends in April 2009.
They literally travel the world studying photography, the bible, world religion, communications, in places like Egypt, Israel, Germany, Venezuala, Africa, India, etc.
It all sounds way too exciting and fun to be real.
But God has been really faithful in opening doors and opportunities for me, so right now I'm just following His lead.
I leave April 3rd, i think.
And I hope to update before then :)
Fingers crossed. -e.
There's a certain feeling of utter relief I get, when I sit back and realize some bad things happen, but they can only get at least a little bit better from here.
My car got totalled two days ago. The 400... gah. Everyone came to a dead stop. And the second I did, the car behind careened into the jetta at full-speed. He told me after, his brakes had failed, even the emergency. He was actually a nice guy, I felt bad.
My parents want to get another one, but here's the catch:
They cost money?
So even with the vehicle situation, or lack thereof.
I feel pretty good. Really good.
I just wish it was January.

...but knowing it will be exciting all the same...
"...all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think..." Ephesians 3:20
Sometimes do you ever just think, I WANT THAT. I want "infinitely more" not just mediocre.
I sure do.
My mind can't make sense of it, logically.
Thank God logic has nothing to do with it.
I'm working at Starbucks right now, very fun, and I'm applying for school....
I'm so so so completely thrilled about starting school.
And if I get accepted, I'll let you know exactly why.

i think anne frank was a genius.
Even when things aren't good, life is still okay :)
On monday I start working for a friend who is a photographer (www.gigiphotography.com) and I'm incredibly excited. Not only am I learning a bunch, but she is really great to work with. It's only for about a month or so, just because she's overloaded with stuff, but it should be an interesting experience.
Also, I'm pretty sure three-quarters of the population have taken Darkroom in highschool. I never did. (My school was somewhat on the chincy side.) But I'm taking a course at Georgian, and if you've never done it before yourself. You should. It's so much fun.... ...really. and I know fun.
Just wondering, but has everyone mysteriously vanished from xanga? I'm not all that great at updating myself, but I'm thinking everyones finally found better things to do with there time. At least I'm hoping that's the reason.
Maybe that's a good thing?
